Remodelista Reconnaissance: A Deconstructed DIY Mirror in a Tokyo Bath

January 27, 2023

Spotted in Considered Minimalism: Fog Linen Founder Yumiko Sekine at Home in Tokyo: proof that the mirror above the washroom sink needn’t be fussy.

Here’s a glimpse—and how to recreate the easy ad-hoc setup at home.

The company cares inordinately about what makes a great hanger: “These strong clips are easier to operate and have 30 percent more holding power than regular clips, with five-coil torsion springs and nonslip coating,” according to Mawa’s site. “Our clamps have been described as tenacious because they never let any clothing slip….This clip hanger can hold up to 8 pounds.” It’s ideal for holding clothing, or perhaps a mirror.
